Brooklyn man fatally stabbed in Queens on Labor Day

A 29-year-old man was stabbed to death in Queens on Labor Day, and his attacker has been busted for the slaying, cops said.

Massiah Berkley, of Brownsville, Brooklyn, was discovered unconscious and lying face up on the ground with a stab wound to the left side of his chest just before 4 p.m. on Beach 20th Street near Mott Avenue in Far Rockaway, police said.

He was rushed to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

His alleged attacker, James Williams, 51, lives less than a mile from the scene and was charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

The two men did not know each other, according to cops, and the motive for the slaying was not immediately clear.

Berkley was the second person killed in the city on Labor Day. The first was Michael Scully, 62, who was gunned down outside his Bay Ridge home as he walked his dog.
